Its great to see Mohan Bbau , even after crossing 4 decades in Tollywood , still gives a tough competition to Young heroes with his performance. He has given his 100% by choosing a character which suites his body language . He has excellent comic timing and proved it once again with this film. Allari Naresh role as Balaraju is a cake walk for him , he impressed with his comedy and also in emotional scenes in the climax. After many years Ali was seen in a full length character, playing Mohan Babu’s old friend . Meena, Ramya Krishna, Varun Sandesh, Poorna and Krishna Bhagavan are good in their roles.
‘Mama Manchu Allu Kanchu’ is a Marathi remake , Director Srinivas reddy succeeded in making changes to the marathi film to suit the nativity of Telugu audience. Director has maintained clarity in screenplay and has taken care in composing the scenes without missing the clarity. Writer Sreedhar seepana has shown his pen power , comedy punch dialogues have blasted. Music was a big letdown for the film, although three music director have composed the music for the film but none of the songs could be remembered. Editing was good . Production values of Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures and 24 frames are good.
Mohan Babu, Naresh Acting
Overall Mama Manchu Allu Kanchu is a outdated plot with some hilarious comedy.
